Let (T, M n ) be a smooth involution on a closed n-dimensional manifold such that all Stiefel-Whitney classes of the tangent bundle to each component of the fixed point set F of (T, M n ) vanish in positive dimension. In this paper, we estimate the least possible lower bound of dimF if (T, M n ) does not bound.
